We are also selling the goldenrod t-shirts in all sizes with same dragon logo, yet in blue. These t-shirts can be worn to school regularly on Frist Fridays Spirit Days, field trips, and other school/parish events. We have sizes for all ages at https://saintgeorgeseattle.ejoinme.org/stgeorgemerch

May this Holy week be a time of reflection on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and his calling to each of us as his disciples. May the peace of Christ be will all of you.
